Six UConn Stamford Students Named Spectrum Scholars

The Center of Career Development wishes to extend congratulations to Chris Suquilanda, Duc An Nguyen, Emma Schwarz, Gloria Dickson, Sarah Velez, and Yuri Jimenez.

Six UConn Stamford students are among the 20 Spectrum Scholars chosen by Spectrum for its newest class of scholars. The Scholarship, designed for underrepresented college students with financial need, grants each recipient with a $20,000 scholarship, a professional Spectrum mentor, and the opportunity for an internship at one of the company’s corporate campuses in Stamford, Charlotte, St. Louis or Denver.

Paul Marchand, Chief Human Resources Officer for Spectrum said “this year’s Scholars are all outstanding, high-achieving students and we look forward to welcoming them to our offices and introducing them to the many career paths and opportunities available at Charter.”

Students chosen have a variety of majors including Computer Science, Digital Media and Design, Marketing, and Political Science and were required to maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher in order to be eligible to apply for the two-year educational and mentorship initiative. Awardees will participate in in-person meetings at Charter’s respective locations, virtual meetings, and a Spectrum Scholars summit planned every December at the company’s headquarters located in Stamford, CT.
